71 truck 350 acting real strange

I have a 1971 c10 longbed with the stock 350 small block...here recently it started acting up..its ideling good but on wot when trying to drive it it starts acting up sounding like it wants to back fire and it starts making a tapping sound..its not rod knock or anything else like that..it sounds like its coming from the drivers side of the engine by the firewall..A fellow rodder noticed my headers had burned the plug wires so i replaced them and it seemed like it made it run alil better but its still doing the same thing....the motor mods are as follows(done by the old owner) camshaft(dont know size) headers and the points ignition was converted to electronic..it has what looks to be the original intake and carb on it...im really at a loss and i could really use your help
